About the Metra 70-2002 Receiver Wiring Harness

Metra 70-2002 Receiver Wiring Harness

This vehicle-specific wiring harness makes connections between your new car stereo and your car's electrical system.

Metra 70-2002 Receiver Wiring Harness

This vehicle-specific wiring harness makes connections between your new car stereo and your car's electrical system.

First, attach the color-coded wires on your Crutchfield-supplied harness to the wires from your new stereo. If you're not using a soldering iron, we recommend that you purchase some wire connectors to secure the connections. Check out our handy article on three ways to connect the wiring harness here.

Now, once this harness is connected to your new stereo, you'll be able to plug right into your car's factory radio connector. This harness makes installing your new stereo easier, and allows you to put the factory radio back when you sell your vehicle or return it at the end of the lease. A detailed instruction sheet comes with the harness. Warranty: 60 days.

Please read this important note: This harness may not contain provisions for every wire needed to complete your installation, and it will not accommodate special navigation, video, or factory steering wheel control connections. You will need a special adapter if you want your factory steering wheel audio controls to work with your new stereo.

Connections:

Note: This harness has three different red 12V switched wires. You'll need to connect only one, which is determined by your vehicle model and series. The included instructions will help you identify which one to use.

  • 12V constant power
  • 12V switched power
  • chassis ground
  • power antenna turn-on
  • illumination
  • dimmer
  • left front speaker +/-
  • right front speaker +/-
  • left rear speaker +/-
  • right rear speaker +/-

Be careful Saturn L300 owners

Daniel from Ft Lauderdale, FL on 1/23/2018

2004 Saturn L300

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

If you have a 2004 or 2005 Saturn L300 WITHOUT the factory amplified system this harness does not work. It only works on models WITH the factory amplified system. The correct harness for models without the factory amp is the Metra 70-2102. I was frustrated for hours until I realized this was the wrong one, but when I called in to customer support, they did go above and beyond to compensate me for the wrong one sent. Hopefully this error will eventually be corrected on their website.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This wiring harness came with the stereo when i purchased it through here. Wired it all up to the new stereo and nothing would come on. had to completely take every single wire out of this harness and re-pin the entire thing. power, ground, speaker wires, everything on it was wrong. Not to bad of a fix but still shouldn't have to do that.

This made wiring a snap. Had two radios to install, so I sat down at my work table with a box of but connectors and pre-wired both units. Plugged directly into the factory harnesses with no issues. Best thing was one was free with the purchase of my daughters Sony unit. The other was worth every cent for the install of my son's radio from his previous car.

Pros: Plug and Play

Cons: none

I cant stress enough about how strongly I recommend the receiver wire harness. it makes a professional install.

Pros: it gives you more length to work with when hooking up. gives your receiver a secure connection. every conductor is labeled and color for easy identification. if you make a mistake you can replace this with out having to splice extension pieces to the factory wire

Cons: I cant think of any it is what every install should have

Metra 70-2002 Receiver Wire Harness Reviews

WCM from Downingtown, PA on 7/3/2014

2002 Saturn SC2

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The Metra 70-2002 Receiver Wire Harness allows for a flawless connection between the vehicle's original wiring harness and an aftermarket head unit. It avoids any alteration to the vehicle's native wiring and allows for final assembly of the Metra harness to the head unit's connector on the bench, hence, there's no cutting or splicing within the car's dash board. Finally, the setup is completely reversible such that there is no issue reverting back to the vehicles original radio or installing a different after-market unit.

Pros: Clear instructions, quality product with an exact fit to the original wiring harness connector

Cons: Would be nice if either crimp connectors or shrink tubing were included to facilitate assembly

Made it easy for this first timer

OrionRed from Columbus, OH on 5/24/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

OK, this is NOT the same thing you'll see at Best Buy. This is exactly the right part for your car. All of the wires were separately labeled, on top of being the 'standard' colors. In my case, there were two extra wires for some controls the crappy radio I bough didn't have. I'm going to fix that problem by getting another radio, When I do, I'll buy another one of these connectors. I'll use those twisty connectors they sell here too, they worked great. If you are putting this in a Saturn SL2, DON'T beat on the top dashboard cover while putting it back in or you'll blow your instrument panel lights. If you are using this

Pros: Long wires, good labels, proper gauge of wires.

Cons: I made the whole cable too long and had trouble stuffing it in the dash.

These harnesses simplify installation tremendously. No more having to splice wires in a confined space, you can splice this to your deck's harness beforehand. Makes installation more like "plug and play."

Wow, never again will I cut a factory wire harness and struggle to get it right. I pre-wired my Kenwood unit harness into this on my front porch in like 15 minutes. I took the factory unit out plugged this straight into factory plug and was listening to new music in less than an hour. The included master sheet also told me what wires i did not need for my application. Crutchfield does their homework!

The only suggestion is that it would have been helpful if the item included some sort of wire fasteners. I used some screw caps that I had lying around, and they did the job with some electrical tape, but installation would have been easier with smaller crimp- style connectors.

I received the harness and it just would not work at all with my factory speakers and Pioneer stereo. I would have sent it back but it came with the kite I ordered.

Absolutely Perfect!

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Worked perfectly for my 2002 SL1. I read instructions carefully several times before pairing up the correct wires. Instructions that came with the Harness were right on => I used them to pair the wires, then crimped them together, one at a time, starting with those I was most sure were correct. With a little time, it all worked well. SL1 radio had a chassis ground that didn't pair up with the harness, but I was able to use the Sony receiver's metal DIN box to attach this ground. Crutchfield is right on - what an awesome resource! Thank you...

great for ease, connected all the wires in my house and walked out and pretty much plug and played my new stereo, had a little confusion because my new stereo had 2 wires for power and memory, did a 3 way splice and the memory works fine, USB remembers where on flash it was and time is great.

Thanks Crutchfield for including this wiring harness. It made installation so quick and simple. I used Butt connectors (I don't solder) to hook up the wiring in my warm workshop. Then I spent 30 minutes in the garage completing the installation.

Product Research

Features

Wiring Harness: This wiring harnesses prevents you from having to cut your vehicle's factory radio plug when replacing your factory radio with an aftermarket head unit. Simply solder or crimp the wiring harness to your aftermarket head unit's harness (solder & crimps not included), plug the aftermarket head unit's plug into the rear chassis of the aftermarket head unit, and plug the wiring harness into your vehicle's factory radio plug.

Note: Installation tools, hardware, & accessories are not included & sold separately. Please see the Accessories tab for recommendations & availability.

Wiring Notes: If the wiring harness is not equipped with a ground wire, you will need to ground the aftermarket head unit's ground wire to the metal chassis of your vehicle. Some vehicle's may require you to bypass the vehicle's factory amplifier (in another location from factory radio) or hardwire certain connections. If your vehicle is equipped with factory steering wheel controls, an additional adapter is required & sold separately.

Q
Is this harness the correct one with several red wires for my 2000 Saturn Sl? One harness I bought only had one red wire and wouldn't power on the deck.
[ bluefever02  Aug 15, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
Hi, I bought the same harness for my 2001 Saturn LW 300 , and It match the wires. What I suggest you do is to take the radio out with the old harness attached and put the new harness next to it and see if all the wires match the colors. If it does you are good to go. Hope thi 'll help Good luck
[ Luky  Aug 15, 2018 ]
Q
what is the BLACK wire with a WHITE stripe?
[ JTurner6972  May 24, 2014 ]
2 answers
A
Well, I never figured out what it was for, but I taped it off and didn't use it. It would have been nice if the darn instructions said something other than where the "red" wire goes. Used on a 2000 Saturn SL1.
[ JTurner6972  May 26, 2014 ]
A
Joe T, I used this harness for a 2000 Saturn LS1 a year ago. I merely matched everything up, heat shrink and stereo works perfectly. Sorry, I do not specifically remember what this wire was for. Did you call or email crutchfield support ? Sorry I could not have been more help-good luck Bob S.
